How to Save Money on Fashion

Did you have such an experience as the following? you once bought a Chanel bag for $40.
It was tossed in a haphazard stack of leather bags at an upscale outlet store. And even though you really didn’t like the color or the size, you bought it anyway.

This fabulous steal actually wasn’t much of a buy at all since you never actually used the bag. In fact, it was a complete waste of $40. And it does make a really bad story.

Have you ever noticed that women love to tell each other about their incredible shopping finds? I used to have a neighbor who liked shopping as much as I did and instead of gabbing about whose husband was cheating or which neighbor had weeds in the lawn, we swapped stories filled with the likes of Ralph Lauren and Gabrielle Chanel .

When online, kinds of sales sites started a while back, like coolebag.com, I happily added the info on to my mailing lists. It helped me get my favorite goods of the color and size that I love.

I’ve collected coupons, shopped sample sales and subscribed their newsletters to follow the latest trend of fashion.

Because as much as I love fashion, I love sales, I love a great deal.

As a woman, it’s probably a good thing I like bargains. A report by the Employee Benefit Research Institute shows that up to one-half of us baby boomers will outlive our retirement savings.

I try not to over-worry about things like retirement right now since I plan to work, well, forever. But I do like to try and live well without spending a fortune.

I’m glad that technology has finally caught up to my bargain-hunting fever. Hope that you can  follow this blog to find the designer bags at best prices.

Chanel Paris-Salzburg Métiers d’Art 2015 Collection

091

Simply put, Métiers d’Art is the one collection that Chanel rolls out once a year that’s full of bells and whistles, the one collection that’s over-the-top OTT, chock full of contributions from Chanel’s specialty houses that includes everyone from Lesage to Montex to Desrues amongst many others, all specialised in painstaking crafts from intricate featherwork to elaborate embroidery.

Presented in a different locale each year which naturally becomes the theme of the collection (remember collections of yesteryear that included such cities as Bombay, Edinburgh and Shanghai?), this year’s collection was presented in Salzburg, Austria, home of beer, pretzels and Heidi.

Correspondingly you’ll be seeing lots of pieces inspired by the hills (not Silent Hill, but more The Sound Of Music‘s The Hills Are Alive), with bags for example presented in everything from shearling to long goat hair with traditional Austrian folk touches, from the beautifully-detailed stitch work to floral patches and then some.

Take the Boy bags (shown above) for example. Each more unusual than the next, there’s the calfskin Boy Chanel in green and red trim that comes with a top handle (SGD8160) and a stunning red goat hair Boy Chanel that’s finished with gold hardware (SGD5350). Love shearling? Than you’ll love the large Chanel Boy shopper that’s mainly swathed in shearling and lined with calfskin leather (SGD8000).

092

Moving along we’ve got more pieces from the collection, and if you’re already channelling Maria and the von Trapp family you’ll realise how familiar the bags and SLGs above feel. From the tweed and wool zip case (SGD1140) to the small Flap Bagin black fabric (and oversized shoulder strap that’s quite military, SGD4570), my personal favourites from the selection above are the slightly bulbous bags that come in felt with matching, slightly pearlised quilted calfskin flaps, in yellow, pink and grey (SGD4100).

And just to emphasise Salzburg’s influence on the Flap Bag, the trio all come embellished with a tiny edelweiss as well. Edelweiss, edelweiss…

093

Just so you know, the collection is much, much more than the pieces already featured, here are 1832, I mean, 8 more. Along the top, a trio of bags (Flap Bag) in felt and grosgrain (SGD4110), followed by a patent goatskin WOC in gorgeous blue (SGD3290) and a calfskin/shearling backpack (SGD5580) that no vintage lover of anything Chanel should do without. The backpack also comes in full calfskin leather and it’s priced at SGD5210.

As for the last two pieces (the embroidered velvet clutch and the exotic croc 2.55), they are listed as ‘exceptional’, which technically means you’ll have to find out their prices at the boutique when you’re seated in case you faint from extreme shock.
